Day 132: Corn Poppy

“Corn poppies, (Papaver rhoeas), also known as Flanders poppies, field poppies or Shirley poppies, are hardy annuals with vividly colored, papery red, pink or white blooms that rise above lacy foliage. The fuzzy stems reach heights of 2 feet and more at maturity. Easily grown by seed, corn poppies are often planted by state highway departments for spectacular displays of color along roadsides across the nation.” (Source)

    • I grew this one myself. It was one of the seeds in a seed pack of mixed wildflowers. What a treat it was to find this one a couple of mornings ago. πŸ™‚
